Beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, Giles Mack, entered into heaven peacefully on Monday, May 1, 2023 at the age of 72.
Giles Francis Mack was born to John & Lena Mack on August 14, 1950 in Rugby, North Dakota. He studied electronics in college before entering service with the United States Army. He served as a communications infantryman in Vietnam, earning several accommodations and medals. He went on to earn his degree from North Dakota State College of Science. Along with caring for his family, Giles was a technician with Xerox for 26 years.
On June 30, 1987, Giles married his loving wife Sharon in Grand Forks, ND. They moved to Florida for a short time. Through a dream, the Lord then directed them to move to Branson. They have lived in Branson for 23 years. Giles devoted himself to Bible study and has written four books on Christian theology. They have had many years of various Christian ministry, including marriage counseling, helping people with divorce care recovery, smuggling Bibles into China, two missionary trips to Mexico, working in New York with David Wilkerson’s ministry to the homeless, building homes with Habitat for Humanity after a hurricane in Florida, two trips to Israel and years of small group Bible study in their home. They have greatly enjoyed entertaining throughout the years. Giles also enjoyed singing, being part of the church choir, and blowing the shofar. Giles and Sharon have been faithful members of Faith & Wisdom Church.
